Stampin' Up! Secret Garden Bundle ....

Another card to share today. This time using the Secret Garden bundle of stamps and matching Framelits (dies) from the Stampin' Up! Seasonal Catalogue.

Stampin Up Secret Garden
My colours are Raspberry Ripple, Primrose Petals, Early Espresso and the Very Vanilla in the First Edition DSP. This is great to stamp on and I used Raspberry Ripple and Early Espresso ink.

I have also used the Delicate Designs embossing folder and the Large Scallop Edgelit which matches this embossing folder beautifully. 

I hope you like today's card. Stay tuned tomorrow for some exciting developments - Online Ordering and My Digital Studio both go live in Australia!

Have a great night,


Stampin' Up! Summer Silhouettes ....

Just love this colour combination of Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple and Basic Black. It came up so bright and summery, but with a great contrast with the touches of black. My Stampin' Up! set used is Summer Silhouettes.

Stampin' Up! Summer Silhouettes

Stampin' Tips to recreate this card:

  • Use coordinating DSP in blocks as a background. I have used two different sheets from the Prints Poetry DSP stack, and a coordinating Summer Starfruit prints piece from the DSP stacks.
  • Use basic black as a highlight to other colour schemes. I have used just a teeny bit as mats to each layer, and as a greeting (from Kindness Matters stamp set).
  • Add co-ordinating flowers to the leaf stamp in Summer Sihouettes. I have also added some adhesive rhinestones in the centre of each flower.

This a great way to use up some coordinating DSP scraps. I hope I have inspired you to create a card using DSP soon.
